Fines:   Don Smith proposed a fine on our President for "normal behavior" which is arriving late for the meeting. It passed.

Announcements:  JM retiree and QCC member, Rich Carlson, suffered a heart attack that occurred after having completed an unrelated surgery. He is currently recovering in a long-term acute care facility and he would really appreciate receiving notes and cards from his JM friends. His wife, Wanda, will bring and read them to him while he recovers. Your get well wishes may be sent to:
Rich Carlson     2958 W. Rowland Avenue     Littleton, CO 80120

B team leader Laskey reported there were 94 players, one or two of whom got lucky playing pickles. The deposit was only $3,500 but the progressive is up to $9,000.

Doug Harder once again reminded us of the RUSH PARTY on Feb 2. START NOW TO INVITE SOMEONE TO THAT EVENT.

Jim Rees announced that FREEDOM WEEK luncheon will take place 2/21/07 . Tim Pollak reported that Rainbow Bridge will sponsor the silent auction during the annual raffle. Dick Enslow has recruited KIRK HON to be the banker at next Monday's bingo. For all of you who do not know who Kirk Hon is, join C team next Monday for a closer view.

Next week the DA from EAGLE COUNTY , who prosecuted KOBY BRYANT, will be our speaker. This should be a power program, so think of someone to bring to lunch.

Doug Harder announced that Jacobus is home and improving and that Parchen is getting better.



Ed Bezjak grew up in Denver , and after various grade schools attended Annunciation High School . As part of the parochial league, Ed and his team mates held their own against rivals such as Regis.

Ed has been married to Margie for 51 years. They have 2 daughters and 3 grandkids. All are above average. Margie is taking Ed to Phoenix for 2 months so someone else will have to take over the bingo team leadership.

In 1992, Ed was inducted into the Colorado Softball Hall of Fame which indicates he had a fair amount of talent in that sport. Mike Magee won the "flying five".

Program:  Our club has an interesting variety of talent among our members and STERING CAIN belongs to that group. Stering brought his Apple IMac and extolled its varied attributes. Both Macintosh and Microsoft can be booted onto the same machine. It responds to voice commands and will speak back to you to read what is on the monitor. For better vision one can have black on white or white on black. It zooms in for the sight impaired user.

Programs that are no longer desired can simply be put into trash without multiple questions about your intent. The monitor contains the computer, camera, loud speakers, the fan etc. This single devise (the monitor) is all you need and it retails for abt $1,500 at CompUSA. If you involve Sterling in the transaction he will get a whopping $50 commission. Ask him for details. There are additional positive features about this computer, and I am sure Sterling will be more than glad to educate you.

Sterling also has a web site at: http://www.aspecttechnologies.net/ and will help you with all your computer needs.

Movie review:


Corporate Lesson 3:
A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out.
The Genie says, "I'll give each of you just one wish." "Me first! Me first!" says the admin. clerk.
"I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world." Poof! She's gone.
"Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina
Coladas and the love of my life." Poof! He's gone.
"OK, you're up," the Genie says to the manager.
The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."

Moral of the story:
Always let your boss have the first say.

Corporate Lesson 4:
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A rabbit asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?"
The crow answered: "Sure, why not."
So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested. A fox jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very high up.
